    Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this but here I go.
    About a month ago I hatched a white silkie chick who I suspect to be a roo, and in the last week I realized his neck feathers turned into a peachy-lemon color, and he has a bunch of pin feathers on the same color on his back, chest, and tail. He also has a single grey feather on his back. Unfortunately I have no pictures of him right now, but I have images of the parents. I'll get a picture of the actual chick soon.

    The mother is the white silkie and the father is the black silkie with silver neck leakage. The male also has a very small amount of red leakage on his back that is hard to see.
    Does anyone know what color this chick is or what they will turn into?

    Ooh, I hope he's porcelain. I'll post a picture of him when I come home from school.

    Are the two birds shown his parents? If so the "black with silver leakage" is actually Grey (silver pencil/partridge)

    Yes, those are his parents. The white silkie hen and the grey silkie roo. The satin silkie hen is just there, she isn't related at all.
